The Mountain Club of South Africa (MCSA) offers mountaineering, which includes climbing of all types, and hiking opportunities to its members and is involved in mountain search and rescue, training, conservation of mountain areas and procurement of access for mountaineering.

The MCSA was founded in 1891 and is one of only two mountain clubs in Africa which are affiliated to the world mountaineering body, the UIAA.

The Club consists of 14 Sections throughout South Africa. Contact the section nearest to you to join in activities (see links in the web page).
